  • Makes me want a fireplace!!!! Oakley had to settle for a space heater… It also makes me want a red and white, I always dreamt of having a black an white and a red and white- they offset each other so nicely and look striking... Oh the wishing!

    yea, that's IF you can get them out of bed.

    we have a low of 17F and a high wind warning, so with the wind chill, it's crazy cold here. Thankfully the basenjis have several heated pads in the house. And we'll do the fire thing here soon. And the 2 boyz have their coats on inside. Glad I was smart enough to get the coats with windblock.

  • Becca and Tucker would like to thank everyone, but they are too busy napping.

    It is crazy cold here too. I think tomorrow is supposed to be around -40 C and with the windchill closer to -50 C which is retarded!! We are really paying for the nice weather we have had for the past month and a half. So far Becca has been outside once today and Tucker has been out a couple. Right now Tucker is in front of the fire and Becca is sitting with me under a pile of blankets. I am glad I don't have to work this week because the furnace would be running constantly and the doggies would not be very happy. Flame (the Toller) is even all curled up in the porch and has only been out a couple of times and he has a thick shaggy coat! Too Cold!

    I can't imagine such cold!! Becca and Tucker are very sensible Basenjis. What happens when they want to pee?!

  • They are in and out in about 2 minutes flat. Then they run straight to the fireplace so they can warm up their cold feeties.

  • Okay so it was only -16C real temp this morning (don't know the wind chill) and Gossy, who can take her sweet-loving-causing-me-impatience-time to find absolutely just the right spot to pee and poop, zipped outside, did her business, and came flying back inside! I don't think it was even 2 minutes! :D

  • ROFL @ wizard. So I have resorted to bundling up myself and packing them down onto the ground to make sure they go. This morning I put Becca's jacket on and shoved her through the door. All she did was turn around and come back in through the doggy door. So I grabbed my jacket and picked her up, hobbled out onto the deck and down the stairs then stood there to make sure she did both. I imagine she will only have to go back outside at around 9 tonite. That dog can hold it forever!

  • Colder than usual here as well - and Kipawa is also doing the 1 minute bathroom break. What sensitive doggies we all have!

    Yep, it's supposed to be even colder tomorrow morning. Should be around -20C or less.

    Kananga does his business very fast in these temps. I'm not complaining, because he too can take his sweet time with finding the "right spot". :)

  • When we lived in town we did not have a wood stove so they would both claim a heat vent. They acutally both still do that until I have a fire made in the morning, then they go lay in front of that!

    We only use wood to heat the house, so on really cold mornings the Basenjis don't bother getting out of bed until there's a fire going. And on some days they don't even ATTEMPT to get out of bed! How do they know it's so cold out when they haven't even poked their noses out from under the covers, and are still down at the bottom of the bed??

    I know hey! They just seem to know. Becca would still be in bed half of the time if I didn't drag her out of there. On mornings when we both go to work they both stay in bed until we call them to go outside. Then they know they have to get up and go potty and then get into their crates. In town they would both stay in bed….Becca sometimes until 11:00am, then she would get up and be all oooohhhhh I guess I should stretch and go out to potty then come and cuddle.

  • Love the pics! Thanks for sharing! I haven't had to deal with that this winter though! I live in SW Oklahoma and its been unusually warm this winter. We've had days where it was in the 70s…in JANUARY. Not ONE bit of precip...and no temps (highs OR lows) any lower than 25 or so. Highs have been in the 40F-70F. Very odd lol.

    :( Krunzer, as the aunt of a niece with Downs Syndome, who has served on coalitions for and MHMR boards, I do want to say the use of "retarded" as a slur is really offensive. I cringe over that use as much as I do the "that's gay" comments, or "Jew down on the price" etc. It's just hurtful. And btw, not singling you out and I have also used words common (like gyped and Indian giver) before I really thought about the connection. Just wanted to share my response, not meant as any type of insult to you personally.
